Sergei's Challenge

In relation to the previous post and urban arts groups, a recent article by Sally McGrane in the New York Times discusses the curious relationship between artistic productivity and the spaces they inhabit, viewed through the prism of architect Sergei Gnedovsky's new Pyotr Fomenko Workshop Theater in Moscow.

Believing that "the worse the conditions, the better the art", Gnedovsky faced a unique challenge in designing a new building for the theater group that had flourished for many years in an apparently less than adequate space.
